Every year, local health districts across the country band together to recognize National Public Health Week, a week where we create connections within the community. This year, we’re focusing on how we strengthen and support the very foundation of our health and our communities. By working together, we can achieve health equity and, eventually, become the healthiest nation.
Once a year the nation officially recognizes the mission of public health – to protect, improve and promote the health and well-being of all people through evidence-based practices.
April 4-10 is National Public Health Week! This means we’re celebrating all the efforts that go into keeping our community healthy. Everyday activities like eating at a restaurant, going swimming, or attending school are safe because of public health measures.
